Individual Nectarine Tarts

Martha Holmberg

Yield: Yields 8 tarts.

For this simple-to-make tart, you can use purchased frozen puff pastry if you don’t want to make your own.

Ingredients

  • 2 sheets (each about 9-1/2×10 inches) prepared puff pastry (Pepperidge Farm works fine), thawed
  • 2 lb. ripe nectarines, pitted and cut into 1/8-inch slices
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 Tbs. unsalted butter, cut into small bits

Preparation

  • Cut each pastry sheet in half lengthwise and then crosswise into quarters. Line two baking sheets with parchment and heat the oven to 425°F.

  • Roll out each pastry rectangle until it’s about 7-1/2×5 inches; don’t worry about keeping it a perfect rectangle. Arrange the pastry bases on the baking sheets, and fold up the two long edges of each base to make about a 1/2-inch border. Arrange the sliced fruit down the center of each rectangle, sprinkle with sugar, and dot with butter. Bake in the hot oven until the pastry is deep golden brown on the bottom and the fruit looks slightly browned around the edges, 20 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.

    Working with super-hard and flavorless nectarines was my challenge. To help solve the problem I sprinkled them with Penzey's Powder Lemon before adding the sugar, and increased the sugar as well. I used a half-sheet of puff pastry and a whole nectarine for the two tarts - which was just enough for my husband and I. These were super easy to make and turned out to be a delightful morning treat. I will make them again - soon!
